Decadent Imperial IPA is not the best DIPA I’ve ever had but I thought it was pretty good.

Look: semi-clear dark golden/orange with an inch white head.
Aroma: bisquit, orange and grapefruit.

Taste: Malty for an IPA, caramel, grains, but there is also a good grape fruit and pine flavor.

Feel: It has a medium mouthfeel

Pours a dark golden color with a grey /white head. Smell is sweet malts and dank citrus . Taste follows nose with the hops getting lost in the malts there are some citrus and garden hops, that show up. A sweet and creamy mouth feel with a boozy dry finish. One dimensional DIPA and very sweet.

Slightly hazy yellow color with off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with earthy, resiny notes. Taste is hoppy with nice resin notes and quite dry overall. Not bad but it's quite simple.
